Hi Rubygems,

I've had a neat idea for a CSS library CLI, I've built it, but I'm trying to acquire the gem name 'style' for it, but a squatter has it and has numerous other snappy names squatted which are completely inactive and have no gem descriptions/documentation.

Squatters URL:
Gem's URL:

Thanks in advance if anything is done about this!

Best regards,

    Hi Gregory,

    Thank you for reporting this.
    Rubygems policy for squatting are still in draft mode. We are hoping to publish them soon. Any decisive action can be taken only after it. Stay tuned :)
